I think it was both of them not believing too much in each other which could have led to the split. JB didnt/doesnt think Rossi has it left, and Rossi couldnt have been happy with JB when they were at Ducati...Rossi is very calculating and his decision wasnt made over night (at least i dont think). I hope Rossi whens some more races and would love to see him get one more title, if he doesnt he would still be the best to ever do it in my opinion

I'm wondering if it was Rossi's or Yamahas choice to pick the new crew chief?..

Rossi only needs a couple tenths per lap to hang with the front three. I believe he will be more competitive next year. That said, I think Jorge will be the faster of the two.

Good to see a post from the far away frozen north country.

I am going through racing withdrawal at the moment, sitting on pins and needles waiting for the new season to begin !!

Dakar starts soon , then the Rolex 24hr , Moto GP can't be far away now
